Well management specialist prepares for expansion

Applied Drilling Technology International Limited (ADTI) is targeting growth worldwide as the company prepares for a significant anniversary.

Plans for 2015

Next month (February) will mark one year since the Aberdeen-based business was acquired by private equity house Sun European Capital Partners from Transocean and the well management market leader has ambitious plans for 2015.

With an extensive track record of providing turnkey and project managed drilling and completion services to a growing customer base, the growth strategy includes a focus on opportunities in the Scandinavian, African and Asian markets.

First permanent overseas office

ADTI plans to launch its first permanent overseas office in Norway early this year.  A presence in Norway will allow the company to expand its international presence and the company is looking forward to working with existing customers as well as developing new relationships in this exciting market.

Contract wins and successful projects with operators including Iona, National Grid, OMV, JX Nippon, GDF Suez, Tullow Oil, Ithaca Energy, Parkmead Group and Oranje-Nassau Energie in the last year have provided a springboard for 2015.

New headquarters in Aberdeen

Following a move to new headquarters in Aberdeen city centre early last year, ADTI went on to successfully complete the re-design and re-certification process for the LRQA 9001 and 14001 accreditation. In addition, ADTI has built on its established Graduate Development Programme (GDP) with the recruitment of eight new engineers who were selected from an initial pool of 800 applicants. The eight graduates have recently been assigned to rig crews to ensure valuable offshore experience is gained.

The company’s commitment to its employees was recognised when it was selected as a finalist in the Oil and Gas UK awards in the Investment in People category.
